Youth Tour Recipient 2024

Orange County REMC sponsored one student on the Indiana Youth Tour, which took place from June 16 to 23. The Youth Tour provides young Hoosiers with the opportunity to visit the nation’s capital, learn about government, experience American history, and gain a better understanding of their electric cooperative and government.

The student representing Orange County REMC at the Indiana Youth Tour was Lee Schrock of Orleans.

“Orange County REMC is pleased to provide this opportunity for our local youth,” Hope Matthew said. “It’s a great trip and a wonderful chance to see the sites, make new friends and learn how everyone, even young people, can make a difference in the political process.”

Students participating in the trip visited the Flight 93 Memorial, Gettysburg Battlefield, Arlington National Cemetery, National Museum of the Marine Corps and Smithsonian museums. The delegation is also touring the National Mall memorials, meeting friends from across the country and much more.

The Indiana Youth Tour students participated in a youth rally hosted by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association and spent a day on Capitol Hill, where they had an opportunity to meet with Indiana’s congressional delegation to ask questions and share their thoughts on a variety of timely issues.
